About Thaba Thipa

Thaba Thipa, which means "Mountain of the Knife", is situated on a 22-hectare farm in the heart of the bushveld, just 10 minutes north from Bela Bela on the road to Modimolle. The name Thaba or "mountain" originates from the mountain the farm is situated on. Hiking will result in beautiful scenery and offers an exquisite view of the surroundings.

All the units have private bathrooms, TVs with full DStv access, fully equipped kitchens and private barbecue areas.

                  This place is more like a plot very disappointing. Couch and chair has big dents in them covered with throws to hide them.. Bed makes a noise. Microwave's paint is all off inside. Stove is a thing on top of counter. Toaster looks 100 years old. TV is very old and one has to stand up to change channels as the decoder is in top of the TV. Towels have frayed edges. Both pools are cold grass is brown no shade as shown in the photo of the place. Quite frankly pools at home are nicer than there. The pictures are taken very cleverly not what this place is at all. Once you walked up a small mountain...

                  This is the second time we have been there, and it still exceeds our expectations, if you want to go and just relax and do game viewing its the place to go. Veronica is amazing and goes the extra mile to make our stay pleasant. Will definitely be seeing more of us.

                  Peace and quiet place to be when you want to recuperate. Kids had fun especially with animals roaming around.
